India’s active Covid-19 cases fall below 9 lakh after a month

The number of active COVID-19 cases in the country has fallen below the nine lakh-mark for the first time in a month and it comprises merely 12.94 per cent of the total caseload, the Union Health Ministry has said on Friday.

The declining trend of the percentage of active cases was commensurately supported by the rising percentage of recovered cases. Recoveries in India had exceeded new cases for three continuous weeks, it said.

“New recoveries in India have exceeded the new cases of COVID-19 for three continuous weeks. The new cases during these three weeks have displayed a steady trend of decline,” the Ministry underlined.
